Baron Antoine Gros Statue Jardin Du Luxembourg

This marble statue bust was commissioned by the Administration des Beaux Arts back in 1886 to adorn the orangery, which is located in the north western part of the Luxembourg Gardens opposite the rosery, and it was put in place along with other bust of different artists in 1888.

Now this particular one depicting Gros was produced by Joseph Fenlon who was born in Bordeaux in 1818 and became a painter, glass painter and sculptor, being admitted to the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1839.

He spent several years living in Paris, yet settled for the remainder of his life in the south of France where he became curator of a museum of paintings in Cannes, then a professor at the school of decorative arts in Nice, prior to passing away in 1897.

Baron Antoine Gros Bust By Joseph Fenlon

And this shows a close up HD photo of the marble bust that depicts Antoine Gros who was born in Paris in the March of 1771 and became a French neoclassical painter, who was well received by Napoleon Bonarte.

After the success of a painting called Bonaparte at the Pont d'Arcole, he travelled with Napoleon and his army and after presenting one of his works at the Salon in 1808, Napoleon gave Antoine Gros the title of Baron of the Empire, which is why you can see the letter B at the start of the inscription of his name below the bust.

But unfortunately, some of his later paintings drew criticism, and he became exasperated, and he was found dead after drowning on the 25th June 1835, which according to some sources was through suicide, yet his legacy has now become the numerous paintings that can be viewed in museums such as The Louvre and the Chateau de Versailles.
